Was fishing yesterday in the deep basin behind my boat.
It’s quite a wide expanse of water, with a couple of piers for boats, then leading down to the lock.
After throwing a bit of groundbait out, I sat down, turned on the radio and cracked open my beer.
After a couple of minutes, the old float started bobbing around.
Fishing on bread.
Pulled this out.
It’s a perch-pike or Zander.
Tiny little chunk.
It’s like a Goby.
You can see it here on my coaster.
Put him back and he swam off.
Maybe one day he will grow up big and strong.
